[ # ] Days of Our Lives loses Hope
July 7th, 2020 under TV Soaps

Back on April 14, 1983, Kristian Alfonso made her debut as Hope Williams on Days of Our Lives. Today, the actress revealed that after 37 years, she will no longer be calling Salem home.

Days of Our Lives has been a vital part of both my personal and professional journey. I am forever grateful to NBC and the late Betty Corday, who took a chance on me many years ago and changed my life. I have built some lifelong friendships with my extraordinarily talented castmates. Days has one of the hardest working crews in all of television, many of whom have become part of my extended family. I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter. I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September. I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago. Finally —to the incredibly loyal fans of Days — many of you have been with me on this journey from the beginning. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity, love and support. I could not have done it without YOU!!!

No word if they will be writing her off or recasting the role. I am assuming by what she wrote, they are killing off the beloved character. As we know in Salem, no one stays dead including Hope. The actress has left the show before and came back, so I would not be surprised if we see her again on the Daytime Drama at some point.

Alfonso did not say what she will be doing next. Since she is 56, she still has plenty of good acting years ahead of her. Who knows, maybe she can share the camera with Lisa Rinna again on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Just like the two of them shared Bo on DOOL. Sadly, it was Robert Kelker Kelly for some of it. Why did anyone think he could replace Peter Reckell?

That is neither here nor there. Are you going to miss Hope?
